Re: One piece, two piece, three piece more...what makes a band?
it must have really bugged Jerry, who cared what people thought about music,
to hear something like, "oh yeah, Muddy Waters is great, but have you heard The Doors?"
& so Grace Slick wasn't a Doors fan either?
Here's a semi-related example...
A friend of my dad saw lots of Fillmore, Avalon etc. shows from '66-'68. He had a lot of the old posters and a few hundred lps.
Around 1986, I was collecting '60s compilations and asked him about the groups on the Nuggets anthology.
I started mentioning a few of the bands, and didn't get any further than Count Five (Psychotic Reaction)...
he got negative, telling me they were garbage...
it was like I had offended him by even mentioning Count Five!
